Review: GreedFall (PC)

A long and thrilling journey.

GreedFall is a game that filled a gaping void I did not know I had for a new action-RPG experience. Though it lacks some of the polish you would expect from a major game release these days, the game still rewards the player with fun and varied combat, complex story beats, and an overall experience that should make even the veterans at BioWare sit up and take notice. For those of you that have been on the fence about picking up GreedFall, you would be doing yourself a disservice if you did not go pick it up right now.

Blizzard Issues Insultingly Pathetic Statement About Blitzchung Suspension and Reasoning

The cowards just doubled down.

Taking a page from politicians and businesses that know late on Friday is the best time to release news that you are positively ashamed to share, Blizzard has finally issued a statement about the recent ban on Blitzchung and two Hearthstone casters.

Before we get into it all, let's just read what they have to say. Here is Blizzard's full statement as it currently appears on their website.



Despite a reduction of six months for the suspension, Blizzard is still punishing Blitzchung. The...
 

Layoffs Hit PlayStation Europe

SIEE had no prior knowledge of PS5 reveal.

A new report from VGC says that Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe (SIEE) is undergoing a "restructuring" of several areas at the company, including marketing and PR. VGC says that they were informed of this unfortunate news from "people with knowledge of the situation."

As if that wasn't bad enough, VGC's report says that SIEE employees were informed about when American PlayStation directors visited SIEE in their London location. Those employees who were impacted by these layoffs...
 

Blizzard Employees Walkout in Protest of Unjust Ban on Pro-Hong Kong Hearthstone Player

A small group of Blizzard employees are protesting against the actions of their employer.

A small group of Activision-Blizzard employees staged a walkout on Tuesday afternoon of this week to protest against their employer. Earlier this week, Blizzard had banned a professional Hearthstone player, Chung "Blitzchung" Ng Wai, after he voiced his support for the pro-democracy Hong Kong protesters. Blitzchung voiced his support during a post-game interview during an official livestream.

Not only did Blizzard quickly cut away from the interview...
 

PlayStation 5 Confirmed for Holiday 2020 Release

Sony dishes more details about their next-gen console and controller.

The announcement of the next-gen consoles has been really, really weird. Sony first announced the PlayStation 5 via a Wired interview with Mark Cerny. Since then, there really hasn't been much revealed about the new console. In fact, it wasn't even known until today that the next console was actually going to be called the "PlayStation 5."

Today, a new PlayStation Blog entry was released alongside yet another exclusive Wired article that provides some additional details...

  • Watch Dogs to Run at 900p on PS4 and 792p on XB1 Both at 30fps

    Watch Dogs to Run at 900p on PS4 and 792p on XB1 Both at 30fps

    Ouch. Ubisoft has officially stated that the console versions of Watch Dogs will not be the graphical powerhouses most fans were wanting. It turns out that the PlayStation 4 version will run at 900p and at 30fps. The Xbox One version will run at 792p, also at 30fps.

    Oddly enough, the Ubisoft blog entry that contains this disappointing news is entitled "What Makes Watch Dogs a True Next-Gen Game".
    The game also looks great on both generations of consoles. On new-gen systems the game will run at 900p on PS4 and 792p on Xbox One, at 30 frames-per-second

  • Rumor (Probably Fake): What to Expect at E3 2014 - Beyond Good and Evil 2, God of War 4, Legend of Zelda: Shard of Nightmare

    This is the latest in the never ending run of rumors and speculation on what fans can expect to see from the Big Three at E3 2014. Hell, we've already seen the rumor about Sony's E3 2014 presentation, but why not a rumor with all three this time?


    This has all the hallmarks of a fake, including terrible JPG compression and a myriad of artifacts around every single word on the page. However, it certainly serves as a bit of hope or at least what fans hope to see at the event. Microsoft will surely win some fans with Beyond Good & Evil 2....
